hmm I think there are also some utils that can copy an MSX bootsector to an image, downloadable @ msx.org. Then you can just use winimage to create the images and patch the bootsector with the other util.

Indeed. Get a real floppy. Format it with MSXForm, add the MSX DOS files and MBWAVE to it. Create a DISK Image. Enjoy! :)

(why didn't I think of that earlier)

I made a disk image but can't add files to it.

Erm... read only? That's normally the lil' black shutter on the bottom-left edge of the disk (when viewing its front), but it's a normal file attribute on a pc. Most obviously:
- Right Mouse Button
- 'Eigenschappen' Wink
- and deselect the 'Alleen-lezen' thing Smile

It should be working I think Smile

Cool, I'm actually getting somewhere at last! Thanks! Smile

One thing still puzzles me (and it still doesn't work): I can only creates disk images that are 760 Kb big.
Some of the files I need to put on it (which MbWave contains), are 760 Kb alone!
Even command.com is, so it seems?

When I try to add those files, I get "Disk Full". How can this be?

It's quite logical if you remember that an MSX disk is only 720 kB Wink

Hey Jorrith! How are you?

It's logical indeed, but why is windows saying that some segments of MbWave and even command.com itself, ALONE are already 720 Kb by themselves?
I can't understand that.
When I still had a normal MSX, I used to have a disk with MbWave, Msx-Dos on it, plus several wavekits and songs.
So why is dskexplorer saying "Disk Full" all the time?
I just can't see what I'm doing wrong...

it seems dskexplorer doesn't work correctly on your machine, so just use winimage to create the images and patch the bootsector with some tool you can get in the MRC downloads section.

Or, use wrdsk Smile or dodsk even!

And, Johnny, don't forget to check out openMSX, too, for Moonsound emulation Smile
